Play Meet Me In The Morning – Everything But The Girl
“I haven’t come to be a stranger…I’ve come to be your love.
Don’t let the grass grow under your feet. The sands of time keep running. For now, at last, i’m down on the street…“
The inherent poetry of the song’s lyrics touches those who have fallen in love despite current attachments. Both as an invitation for escape and a fervent rescue towards a fuller life of love. Many will perhaps sense that the song may have advocated cheating or adultery. But Teki would like to believe that the song talks more about the finding of true love, which is something you cannot discount happening. The hope of no harm by the singer’s perspective allows one to think that at last one is urged to take the adventurous plunge of being happy. (You will find this track in EBTG‘s 1990 album, Language of Life.)
Tracy Thorne and Ben Watt have a way of taking the reality of relationships into a poignant and well-meaning song of anyone’s freedom to find true love. And Teki hoped to find hers when she first heard the song. And to a large degree, she did.
Listen to the rest of the album, Language of Life, and have a fuller experience of the many relationships we can be in. Or better yet buy the album from iTunes.
